How to copy one complete row?

Post by software931 » Thu 20 Sep 2012 09:40

Is there an easy way to copy one complete row, and overwrite the key columns afterwards?

I have a table with a lot of columns. I don't like to write a copy routine manually, because there are so much columns.

Is there any way to copy them all together?

There are three ways:
1) write your own code for cloning each object;
2) use some "third-party" code/library like http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1334 ... rence-type
3) we will implement the "Implement IClonable" option in our Entity Developer templates to generate all objects with the IClonable implementation. We will post here when the corresponding build of Entity Developer is available for download.

The "Implement IClonable" option for the generated classes based on the model entities is added to all templates. We will post here when the corresponding build of Entity Developer is available for download.
